From November 28th to December 2nd 2018, the Whistler Film Festival will welcome film fans and filmmakers to experience its 18th edition with fresh films, special guests, epic events, innovative industry Summit and talent programs, and time to play in North America’s premiere mountain resort destination.

To recognize the vitality of the art form, WFF 2018 will feature seven juried competitive sections with 15 awards and one audience award selected from up to 1,000 submissions. Approximately 90 films from Canada and around the world (including 45 features and 45 shorts) will be presented.

Over the years, WFF has established an impressive track record for launching new films and filmmakers, and has earned a reputation as a ‘filmmakers festival’ through its coveted competitions and non-competitive sections that celebrate the best in independent Canadian and world cinema. Did you know that WFF features the second largest cash and commission festival prize for a Canadian film in the country?

The Whistler Film Festival has been recognized by media as ‘Canada’s coolest film festival’, ‘one of the top 30 film festivals in the world’ by Variety, ‘one of seven of the best film festivals in the world to attend’ by Travel and Style, and ‘Whistler’s Best Arts & Cultural Event’ by Whistler’s Pique Newsmagazine, and is consistently rated as one of the top film festivals in the country by film fans and filmmakers alike.

Early Bird Passes are on sale until September 21, and then single day passes go on sale November 14,2018.
